Women In Need, the Kūpa‘a Kaua‘i CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act program, and the County of Kaua‘i’s Housing Agency announced the implementation of a program that offers emergency rental, mortgage and child care assistance, according to a news release by the County of Kaua‘i on Friday, July 17.

“This program can provide services for up to 160 households for rent/mortgage assistance and 55 families for child care subsidy to Kaua‘i residents who have suffered a loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mayor Derek Kawakami said.

“Our goal is easing the financial burden that families are experiencing as a result of the pandemic,” Scott-Lau said.
